    What would your first order of business be, if you were a law enforcement officer?

    To war and arms I fly.

    I believe if I had just graduated the academy and were sworn in, the first order of business is to buy my FTO coffee.

    I was so excited for my first shift on my own, then when it came and I finally rolled out on my own without anyone over my shoulder monitoring me, I was scared to death. The gravity of how much responsibility you carry really hits you at that moment.

    First order of business? Search one of the in-laws' house or stake out his house and catch him doing his illegal deeds. Then put the rest of the in-laws on notice that I won't tolerate any illegal activity from them whatsoever. And then enjoy the look on their faces.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Man, I remember feeling like I was ready to take on the mafia, I though I was finally going to solve every cold case there was, I was the law and everyone was going to know it. I was itching for a call, I pulled more traffic stops that day then I have in my career combined. I thought I was going to solve all the worlds problems in one day. I was ready for it, had an attitude like, "I wish a MF'er would!!". Oh, how naive I was, but a better description of me was exactly like in this video. Didn't know how to talk to people and all I knew was I was the law and you WILL listen to me!!

    THIS WAS SOOOOO ME!!! lol!!!
